The preparation of the ITER site started on 29 January. By October 2007, part of an area of 180 hectares next to the Cadarache site will be prepared under the supervision of the Agence ITER France, for the construction of ITER. Great care has been taken to minimize the environmental impact of this work, including an environmental inventory of the flora and fauna and protective measures.

Tree-felling on parts of the first 75 hectares will be carried out before the end of March 2007 when the bird nesting season starts. Work to enable the erection of a provisional fence should be completed in April 2007.
